21st Birthday Card for a Grandson

Well it is hard to imagine that my second grandson is going to be celebrating has 21st birthday on Tuesday. Seems like just yesterday he was a baby, than a boy and now he is a find you man attending college and working.

His card was designed using the Gypsy and cut on the Expression. Using the Gypsy I was able to weld some small rectangles from the George basic cartridge to the 2 1(Alphalicious cartridge),  enabling me to suspend the 21 in the window of the card. The card is a window card with jagged edge from the Wild Card cartridge. The card  5 5/8 X 5 3/8 was cut from black paper with white dots. The white layer was cut to fit the front of the card, embossed with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug folder using the Cuttlebug and the jagged edge was inked with Colorbox ink. The shadow for the Happy Birthday(Birthday Cakes cartridge) was cut a little larger and offset slightly.

The 6 X 6 envelope was made using the Martha Stewart Scoreboard.
